Blanket Chest – Whipple House – 0110

Blanket Chest – Episode 10

The blanket chest has been around since the Pilgrims came to Massachusetts in the 1600s. In this episode, Tommy builds one that demonstrates basic frame construction as well as mortise and tenon joinery. He also shares his techniques for carving, a special feature of the box that is both dramatic and simple. He also stops by the Whipple House in Ipswich, Massachusetts, to speak with artisan Rob Tarule. Later, his friend and fellow woodworker, Al D’Attanasio, stops by the shop for a chat.
